Mari Bickley '23 Featured in Slam Magazine
Mari Bickley '23 was featured this month in Slam Magazine where she weighs in on her basketball career to date, her heavy emphasis on academics, and why she chose Laurel to support her in both areas.
She says, “I’m really big on education. I value that a lot because I know eventually one day this basketball is going to stop bouncing. I am a straight-A student, so Laurel [School] really caught my attention. After that, I started looking into their basketball team and realized that they have a really strong program, so I got lucky there.”
The article delves into her amazing play on the court and the various colleges that are recruiting her. The article states that "Ohio State, South Carolina, Kentucky, Michigan State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Mississippi State, and LSU are among the teams to make offers to Bickley, but there are some dark horses in the recruiting battle, too. Mari says she is "Heavily thinking about Ivy League schools, which may be surprising to most people because they don’t understand how important education is to me. Harvard, Princeton, Columbia have all been recruiting me, and I have visits planned.” Click here to read the full article.
